In this hypothetical scenario, we describe in rich detail Ecuador’s predicted climate future for 2040. We successfully tested the climate scenario model as a decision-making support tool at the Three Degrees Conference last year, and adapted it for use with students in our Climate Justice Seminar this year. The scenario exercise fosters creative thinking on adaptation responses to future climate impacts and the risks of those responses. It prompts such questions as: How can we structure transnational adaptation efforts in regionally appropriate ways? How can we promote independent, community-based responses and solutions in conjunction with UN efforts and other existing national regimes?
